Deep showed Murphy balancing mass appeal and his own distinct art with perfection. The US hit "Cuts You Up" represents a perfect calling card for the album as a whole, with Murphy in excelsis throughout.

The album spawned three singles: "The Line Between the Devil's Teeth (And That Which Cannot Be Repeat)", "Cuts You Up" and "A Strange Kind of Love". The track "Cuts You Up" became a modern rock hit in 1990, spending seven weeks at the top of the U.S. charts and crossing over to Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at number 55. The other singles also charted on Modern Rock Tracks chart, peaking at number 18 and 21, respectively.
